In an interview with PYNK magazine, NBA star Carmelo Anthony’s wife, Lala Vazquez, dishes on why she turned down a chance to be on VH1’s “Basketball Wives” reality show.
Lala tells PYNK magazine:
“I was offered a spot on the show. I turned it down. I have absolutely nothing against basketball wives, the show Basketball Wives, or anything like that. But I pride myself in being more than just a basketball wife. I understand that’s something that I am, but that’s not a title that I want to define me. I’d rather be known as a mom, a businesswoman, a producer, an actress, a TV host. I just felt like that didn’t fit who I was and where my career was trying to go.”
Lala and Carmelo are gearing up for the second season of their reality show titled, “LaLa’s Full Court Life.”
The show will give fans a chance to look into her life and see La La juggle her busy acting and television hosting career and seek advice from some of her famous friends, including 50 Cent, Kelly Rowland, Trina, Serena Williams and her best friend Ciara.
The 10-episode 30 minute series will premiere Monday, August 22nd, 2011 at 10 p.m.
